One of the Finger Lakes' strongest red grapes, Lemberger (Austrian grape also known as Blaufränkisch) presents exceptionally well as a young wine and also has serious aging potential.
Aromas of fresh blackberries, raspberry jam, and a suggestion of black pepper are followed by rich plum and red cherry flavors that evolve to sweet vanilla. Moderate tannins mark this as an excellent food wine.
